Is Luc Besson back?

Once he was one of my favourite directors, but after the double hits of Leon and The Fifth Element, his hyped Joan of Ark movie failed to strike gold at the box office.  Ever since he been best known as a producer and writer, being responsible for such hits as Taken and The Transporter, but apart from an underwhelming directing turn on French Indiana-Jones-like movie The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc Sec, and the poorly received comedy gangster movie The Family … he’s not really got his mojo back in years.

I’m hoping the imminent release of his Scarlett Johansson high-concept thriller ‘Lucy’ changes this.  By the looks of the trailer, it would appear so.
